Summer is such a great time of year for fresh fruit, especially locally grown fresh fruit at farmer's markets and grocery stores and right now you can find fresh blueberries for a great price and even though they're great for eating plain, a blueberry pie is a classic and is so much easier to make than you could imagine.

Unlike apple pies, you don't need to peel and slice blueberries which for me makes this the perfect pie. I can be in and out of the kitchen in no time.

I think presentation can take even the simplest of recipes and turn it into a thing of beauty and for that reason, I used my Pioneer Woman ruffle top pie plate. The edge makes it easier for me to pretend I know how to crimp a pie crust and make it look pretty. In addition to me not liking to make my own pie crust, edges are not my strong suit but thankfully, everything comes together to make something delicious with just a few hacks.

  • Flute the edges and vent the pie crust. Simple cuts through the dough will suffice, or you can make a design. I like to add initials or simple cutouts to my pies.

  • Use a pastry brush and apply the egg wash to the top crust and the fluted edges of the pie.
  • Cover the pastry edge with aluminum foil strips and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake for an additional 15 minutes until pie top is a golden brown.

  1. Mary Beth, I have the last of our blueberries just sitting in my fridge waiting on me to make this! And that pie plate by PW is the cutest!

    1. Mary Beth says:

      Oh, Jane...you have your own blueberries??? That is so awesome. I am dreaming of my next house and that's one of the things I want to grow....blueberries! If you do make the pie, enjoy a slice for me. xo

  2. Girl, you are so cute! I saw the C & C in the crust. LOVE it! And I have never made a blueberry from scratch pie. I thought it was too hard. LOL Funny thing since I make my own pie crusts. I think Tim would be in heaven if I made it for him... it's his FAVORITE!! Thanks! Now to figure out the GF version. 😉

    1. Mary Beth says:

      Ahhhh...you noticed the C&C 😉 It will be our little secret! I didn't really know how easy blueberry pie filling was, either, until I made this pie. The crust, now....that's another thing. I literally have never made a pretty crust. The last time I made one from scratch, I actually was having such a hard time that Joey made it for me and he did a great job. I hope you can figure out a GF version for Tim. *hugs*

      Thanks so much, Kristin!

  4. This looks so delicious and easy. I’ll have to make this while our blueberries are so in season now. I’ve never made fresh blueberry pie, only red raspberry.
